Looking for validated, common measures for population and community health that can be used across sectors to address social needs and social determinants?
A recently released report, Well-Being In the Nation Measurement Framework: Measures for Improving Health, Well-Being and Equity Across Sectors, offers simple, powerful cross-sector measures to help you do that.
- A set of common measures to assess and improve health, well-being, and equity.
- 3 sets of measures:
- 9 core measures organized around the well-being of people, the well-being of places, and equity
- Leading indicators based on domains such as community vitality, housing, transportation
- A full flexible set of measures.
- An Interactive website with data availability to as low a level as there is availability with equity breakdown wherever this was available (www.winmeasures.org)
The Well-Being In the Nation measures were developed by over 100 organizations and communities working together across sectors to identify and try out measures that mattered to them. This collaborative process was facilitated by 100 Million Healthier Lives and supported by the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics, who created the foundational framework for WIN.
